Default singed flower napkin rings

Does anybody have an idea for what to use for the napkin ring part?? I just got a call from a boutique I sell my singed flowers to and they want napkin rings made with singed flowers! I was thinking little scunci rubberbands but will that be too cheap looking for something that she sells for $15.00? Any help is appreciated! Thanks!!

Does this look like something that would look good underneath a singed flower?

I made some for a family picnic once but I just cut a strip of ribbon and added a felt strawberry to the center of it and then tied it around the silverware and napkin but it was just my family so nothing fancy. Maybe some shower hooks would work? Not the cheap plastic ones but the fancier looking ones maybe wrapped with ribbon. I don't know, that probably didn't help you at all!

What about the small grapevine rings that you can find at hobby lobby for like 20 cents and use floral wire to attach the flower?

I've made them with the shower rings wrapped with 7/8" ribbon and then whatever I'm attaching on the part that isn't the same width (hope that made sense)

That means I can use any cheap shower ring and cover it with a nice ribbon! Isn't it?

you can also use the more sturdy cardboard tubes/rolls from aluminum foil. if you use the more flimsy ones (like paper towel cardboard) i usually cut one tube open and make it a bit smaller & glue the 2 together for more strength.

i've even latex polyurethaned the ribbon/fabric to make them spill/food stain resistant/more durable . . . since one t/giving some of them found their way into the gravy spills!

i've also used leftover pvc pipe.

g/luck!

edit . . . you can also make them cheaply with wire braided/wrapped around a spice jar (for uniformity) for a more elegant look . . . and also string a few beads onto the wire.

edit edit . . . and for kids you can staple the colorful foam into a napkin ring & then cover up the staple w/your doodah . . . lol - i could keep on going!

Oh wow, I love the idea of woven ribbon for the ring! I bet those would look perfect for with the singed flowers.
